This was a great conversation with Kristi Leonard, author, writing retreat host, audio narrator for nonfiction books, president of the Women's Fiction Writers Association, and future podcast host.

In this episode, Kristi shares how the idea for Writers in the Wild Retreats came to her, as well as how she applied lessons she learned from hosting her first two retreats to her upcoming Blue Ridge Retreat in April 2024.

I also really enjoyed hearing about the different aspects of her retreats like why she doesn't include coaching in them, and what goes into finding the perfect spot that writers will love.

If you're a writing retreat host, or thinking of hosting one, Kristi also gives insights into how she promotes her writing retreats and the role email marketing plays.
